Tag Day Drive
Nets $1,036
To Canmp Fund
Faculty, Fraternities May
Raise Yield To $2,000;
More Than Last Year
Results Gratifying,
GeorgeAdler Says
The funds received yesterday from
the eighth annual Tag Day drive
amounted to $1,036, it was estimated
today. This amount, received from
the actual sale of tags, does not in-
clude fraternity and sorority contribu-
tions which have not yet been turned
in and which are expected to total
approximately $200.
More contributions are also ex-
peeted from merchants and members
of the faculty. It is hoped that the
final total will be near $2,000, which
was the goal set for the drive.
The result of this year's drive
was very gratifying, Mr. George Alder,
director of the camp, said. The total
surpasses last year's $1,187.
Raises Funds For Camp
The drive was conducted to raise
funds for the University 'res 'Air
Camp at Patterson ake this sum-
Mr. Alder praised the fine spirit
of Tag Day this year. More people
bought tags this year than ever be-
fore, although individuals' were not
able to contribute so much, he said.
The drive was begun yesterday
morning with 12,000 tags printed.
This supply wits exhausted by noon
and 4,000 more were stamped for
the afternoon sales. Approximately
15,000 tags were sold this year, far
exceeding last year's total of 10,000.
Cooperation Praised
Mr.i Alder attributed much of the
success of Tag Day to the coopera-
tion and effort of the women students.
He also spoke of help given by fra-
ternities and sororities and other cam-
pus organizations who took volunteer
posts on the campus. Members of
the camp staff took part in the down-
town sections of town, assisted in
many cases by boys who have been
given summer, at the camp. Charles
McLean, Grad., was general chairman
of all student committtees working on
the Tag Day. Roberta Chissus, '39A,
was League chairman.
Tle committee wishes to thank all
persons who have aided in the success
of the campaign. Mr. Alder said. Do-
nation of signs by the Gillespi Sign
Co.; posters and tags by Athens Press,
Davis and hlnger, and Mayer-Scha-
irer, pails by Muehlig and Lamphear,
and Schlenker Hardware; contribu-
tions of publicity materials by Ulrichs,
Slater'., Wahr's, Diu Varren and
Cloverleaf Dairies; and cooperation of
other business men has been greatly
appreciated, Mr. Alder said..

Seven Old Men' Of Publications
Board Sit In Judgment Today

Meeting Starts 8:30 A.M.;
Will Appoint New Heads
Of Student Publications
Seven men, each one carrying a
portfolio, will file into a conference
room on the second story of a red and
gray brick building on Maynard Street
at 8:30 this morning. For several
hours they will discuss the contents
of the portfolios around a highly
polished table. They will come to
decisions-decisions that will be
awaited by a group of students who
have known during these last few
days only dementia praecox in their
waking hours and insomnia dt night.
The seven men are the four faculty
members and the three student mem-!
bers of the Board in Control of Stu-
dent Publications. The expectant stu-
dents are those palsied remnants of
undergraduate manhood who are
waiting for the announcements of
next year's senior positions on Mich-
igan's student publications.
The Michigras-May Festival con-

certs-classes--all have occupied the
campus these last few weeks, but
members of student publications have
restricted their interests largely to
conversations, prophecies and even
wagers on the list of names that will
emerge from the Board's conference.
The process of selecting editors
and business managers for next year's
Daily, Gargoyle and 'Ensian began
two and one half years ago when a
wide-eyed group of freshmen turned
out for the publications. Less than
half were left at the beginning of
their sophomore year. Different in-
terests, ineligibilities a n d other
schools and jobs cut down still fur-
ther the number who reported for
work at the beginning of this year.
Last week, members of each staff
filled out ballots, marking their first,
second, third, etc. choices for the top
position on their staff.
Five o'clock last Saturday saw a
heap of papers on one of the desks at
the Publications Building. They were
petitions or applications written by

Reduction In Local
Tax Rate In View
A lower tax rate is in prospect for
local property owners as a result of
substantial reductions in the city's
bonded indebtedness, city officials
announced yesterday.
Payment of the final $50,000 of the
1932 calamity bond issue over the
past year decreases the 1938 amount
to be raised for the city's debt service
and sets the rate at an estimated 15
per cent, lowest in the past two years.
Last year's city tax rate was $11.15
per thousand assessed valuation,
which was an increase over the pre-
vious summer's rate of $10.26. The
1938 estimated reduction would bring
the rate down to $9.87.

NLRB Moves
For Test Case
In High Court
Action Taken After Circuit
Court Denies Petition
Against Republic Steel
WASHINGTON, May 13.-(P)-
The National Labor Relations Board
moved quickly today for another Su-
preme Court test of its powers after
the U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals in
Philadelphia denied the Board per-
mission to reopen its case against
Republic Steel Corp.
The Philadelphia court not only re-
fused the Board's petition to reopen
the case for further proceedings, but
restrained the board from "taking
any steps" until the certified record
of the Republic Steel hearings is filed
with the Court.
In an effort to force the Philadel-!
phia tribunal to alter its stand, So-
licitor General Robert H. Jackson
and Charles Fahy, the Labor Board's
general counsel, petitioned the Su-
preme Court for a writ of mandamus.
The Supreme Court's decision on the
petition may conceivably be handed
down next Monday but more likely
will not be announced for several
weeks, at least.
The legal struggle began months
ago when the Board declared that
Republic had violated the rights of
organized ,labor under the Wagner
Act. The company was directed to re-
instate 5,000 mill hands who walked
out of Republic plans in the CIO.

Navy Bill Sent
To President
For Approval
Arms Embargo On Spain+
Defeated By Foreign
Relations Committee+
12 Millions Sought
Far Naval Spending
WASHINGTON, May 13.-()-+
The United States took action today+
on two vital points of defense and1
foreign policy when the Senate sent+
the billion dollar navy expansion bill
to the White House and the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee over--
whelmingly defeated a resolution to+
lift the arms embargo against Loyal-+
ist Spain.
Almost immediately it became
known that the Navy hoped to start
work without delay on some of the+
46 new fighting ships, 26 auxiliaries
and 950 planes the measure author-
izes. I
After conferring with President
Roosevelt, Admiral William D. Leahy
said the Navy recommended an im-
mediate appropriation of about $12,-
000,000 to start two cruisers, several
auxiliaries and "some of the planes.'
(The bill passed today authorizes
the construction but does not provide
the funds.)
The arms resolution, introduced by
Sen. Gerald P. Nye (Rep., N.C.), was
pigeonholed with only one senator
opposing, after the Foreign Relations
Comittee had been given a blunt
warning by Secretary of State Hull
that "unnecessary risks" would bet
involved if it passed.E
Despite the fact that Hull opposed1
lifting the Spanish embargo at this
time, some committee members said
his message indicated that the State
Department is considering asking
later for revision of the neutralityI
Chairman Pittman (Dem., Nev.)
said he thought this was a "fair
assumption" after reading a section1
of Hull's communication which ad-
vised against "piecemeal" revision of
the act.
The Secretary of State said that "if
reconsideration is to be given to a1
revision of our neutrality legislation,
it would be more useful to consider
it in its broader aspects in the light
of practical experience gained during
the past two or three years, rather
than to rewrite it piecemeal in rela-
tion to a particular situation." c
Decentralizing k

Favors Bacon Amendment
Adoption; Asks Federal
Relief Aid For States '
Sen atom, Arthur H. Vandenberg of
Michigan indicated today the Senate
minority would attempt again to turn
relief administration back to local
Vandenberg said he favored in-
corporation of the Bacon amendment
in the Administration's $3,000,000,000
spending-lending proposal.
The amendment, defeated in the
House when offered by Representative
Bacon (Rep., N.Y:) would have pro-
vided for decentralization of relief,

directed its administration by states
and required states to contribute 25
cents for each dollar of federal funds
allotted them.
The Michigan Republican cited his
fight to turn the relief problem over
to states and give them federal aid.
"It is a matter of economy and bet-
ter judgment," Vandenberg said. "Lo-
cal governments know their relief
needs, know what they can afford
to contribute, and know how relief
funds can be administered most eco-
- Vandenberg said he has "given up
all hope" of revision of the current
social security program during the
present session.
Rourke Succeeds

The appointment of Dr. Anthony J.

George P. Bugbee was announced yes-

Persons in Ann Arbor, who, for one
reason or another, were out bene th
the stars ar stationed at the busin s
end of a telescope from 3:18 a.m. to
4:19 a.m. today saw a total eclipse
of the moon.
More than 40 enthusiastic astro-
nomers celebrated the coming of the
eclipse with doughnuts and coffee,
served by Mrs. Robley C. Williams in
the University Observatory. Mr. Wil-
liams of the astronomy department
was in charge of the Observatory dur-
ing the eclipse.
It was impossible for the Daily to
determine last night how persons
other than astronomers celebrated
the advent of the eclipse but sounds
emanating from certain establish-
ments along Ann Arbor's "Great
White Way" indicated last night that
there were those who preferred to cel-
ebrate the coming of the first total
eclipse of the moon since June, 1935,
glued to the business ends of a beer
bottle rather than that of a telescope.
However, women who wished to ob-
serve the eclipse in a more or less
unromantic fashion, were granted late

permission to attack the telescope at
the Observatory and observe its prog-
ress as well as the rings of Saturn,
which were also included on the star-
gazing program of the Observatory
this morning.
The eclipse, according to Prof. Dean
B. McLaughlin of the astronomy de-
partment, was caused by the shadow
of the earth falling upon the moon.
.The earth, at the time of a total
eclipse of the moon is directly in the
path of thesun's rays, preventing
them from reflecting on the moon
and causing the eclipse. The eclipse.
started at about 1:30 a.m., was in
totality from 3:18 a.m. to 4:09 a.m.,
and was finished at about 5:30 ,a.m.
At the beginning of the eclipse a
dark shadow can be seen moving
across the face of the moon, accord-
ing to Professor McLaughlin, grad-
ually cutting it down to a very thin
crescent moon. During'totality the
moon is a copper-color because the
atmosphere of the earth diffuses some
of the rays of the sun so that they
do strike, very weakly, the surface
of the moon.

Spring Football
Drills Will End
With Exhibition
2,000 High School Players
And Coaches Will Watch
Squad In Stadium Today
The finishing touches will pe put
on the 1938 spring football season
at 4 p.m. today when Head Coach
Fritz Crisler sends his men through
the traditional Yellow-Blue -scrim-
mage at the Stadium.
The spring game which used to
call for almost two hours of gruel-
ling scrimmage under the hot sun has
been whittled this year so that only
a little more than 30 minutes will
be devoted to actual play.
Squad Divided Evenly
Crisler has divided his squad with
an eye to balance and claims that
should the scrimmage work' out as
planned the result will be a scoreless
tie. Both squads are well supplied
with veterans and yearlings alike and
there is little choice as to which out-
fit possesses the greatest power.
Approximately 2,000 high school
football coaches and players will be
on hand to witness the scrimmage
and the demonstration of individual
position play which will precede it.
The analysis of position play will
be conducted by the coaches with ac-
companying explanation. The leading
candidates for the various posts will
be used in the demonstration.
Attendant to the close of the spring
drills each year is the awarding of
the Chicago Alumni Trophy to the
gridder most outstanding in attend-
ance, improvement and promise in the
opinion of the coaches. The award
will be made next Wednesday eve-

Prison Strikers
Put In Solitary
San Quentin Recreation
Time Cut Protested
SAN QUENTIN, Calif., May 13.-
(A)-Solitary confinement was or-
dered today for 15 convict ringlead-
ers in a "folded arms" strike in crowd-
ed San Quentin Prison, after 350 pris-
oners refused to work.
It was the second day of strike
demonstrations by the convicts who
protested reduction in recreation time.
Warden Court Smith said the disi-
plinary action caused about 150 of the
strikers to return to work. The others
still refused. Earlier in the day the
number of those in the demonstra-
tion was about 500.
Warden Smith said one convict,
Percy Eberlee, Los Angeles murderer,
was transferred to Folsom today be-
cause he induced jute mill workers to
engage in the strike. At Folsom,
where "tough" convicts are held, Eb-
erlee will do rock pile duty.
The convicts marched to their jobs
as usual this morning but did not
work. They walked about the shops
in silence.

A baseball team was born and a

With veteran Herm Fishman hurl-

downtrodden Michigan team stormed
out of the doldrums to wallop Ohio
State 6 to 0 and annex its second
Conference win of the season.
Herm came back yesterday-all the
way. He silenced the innuendoes of
the local fandom who had been in-
sisting that the Fishman of old was
washed up, shorn of his former ef-
fectiveness. He set down the power-
ful Buckeyes with apparent ease, nev-
er letting the situation get out of
hand, and remaining ever cool and
intelligent in his work.
He had a real baseball team be-
hind him yesterday, a club that start-
ed plugging in the first inning and
never stopped, It was a wide awake
team, a determined team, a confi-

startling form reversals of the" year

MEXICO CITY, May 13.- P)-
Mexico severed diplomatic relations
with Great Britain tonight.
The government's foreign relations
department announced the with.
drawal from London, "in view of the
unfriendly attitude" of the British
Government, of her minister PIrimo

owned foreign oiindustryin Mexico).
It was expected Great Britain would
counter immediately with withdrawal
of her minister to Mexico, OwenSt.

O'Malley said this evening he had
as yet received no instructions from
London. He added that he probably
would not decode until morning any,

LANSING, May 13;(*P-The SateN
Department of Labor and Industry
has invoked a code of rules governing
the employment of Mexican labor in
sugar beet fields, but the heads of
three other divisions of government
indicated today they saw few benefits
from it.
George A. Krogstad, labor commis-
sioner, had predicted the code would
discourage the importation of thou-

sands of Mexicans from other states
to work in the fields and would find
employers taking more of their la-

ported hundreds of Mexican laborers
were being imported from Texas and
other states for beet field jobs, and
said it has started a campaign to
